importance of the asia pacific region and russia's cooperation with. the successful completion of the new asia pacific house is in the country's interest in. a constructive life i would like to note that russia is open to this kind of cooperation especially the creation of alliances of course many issues were addressed during the ac and working sessions for example the issues of natural disasters which of course this region is specifically prone to also various other issues like economic cooperation global security dealing with the aftermath of the global financial crisis all those issues were discussed to my satisfaction it seems from the ac alligator's region is a very attractive one primarily because it has a lot of growing economically growing countries china of course is one of russia's main partners and is of course a part of bric brazil russia india and china says some experts say one of the strongest emerging economies in the world today in those boys to deal with the
effects of the global financial crisis a lot better than the so-called economic giants like the united kingdom the united states and the european union support also its relations with vietnam go back a very long way and they do seem to be very strong ties as the russian president dmitry medvedev said in an article published in the local newspaper russia stood by the vietnamese as they fought for their independence and will continue to stand by them as they emerge a strong economy into the twenty first century into the world arena as my colleague muddies the notion of found out the economic ties between moscow and how we are growing stronger by the day. in the twenty first century it might look like a slow backed coup. but it's not the case vietnamese. its economy growing at an increasing rate and it's looking to.
russian money big companies are flowing to vietnam bringing millions of dollars of investment which is a good sign of healthy relations. but the biggest venture he still had russia is to build vietnam's first atomic power plant it took several years for georgia's an environmentalist to find the right place here in vietnam to build the country's first nuclear plant they turned the central province when chan haiti's locals call it the land of sand and song there is no rain here now are trading with us for the first time in the last few months and as a result few people living here and that makes it an almost ideal place for future project and the plans include a power stations within the next two decades we think the first unit we launched by twenty twenty it will provide us with cheap and safe energy to meet up to fifteen percent of the rise in demand local people welcome the idea of the region which is among the poorest in the country becoming vietnam's and
a deep powerhouse communities here have traditionally been dependent on fishing and dries growing but now the sense of brighter future. infrastructure and give us opportunities i think one day my children could be working at this plant and for this they all work hard good education and be smart it's an honor. but one long reach over the red river north of annoy vietnam the country's longest for years it symbolized a long friendship between vietnam and its strongest ally communist brother u.s.s.r. its vietnamese name could be translated as rising dragon and it seems the drug got its tail flying high twenty years on after the collapse of the soviet union russia is among vietnam's closest partners griffin ocean r.t. vietnam. and on the sidelines of that summit moscow and washington vowel to
continue talks on the u.s. missile defense shield program and new european security architecture russian foreign minister sergei lavrov met with the u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton the two also praised the successful joint anti drug operation in afghanistan and agreed to go on with the fight against the narcotics threat on thursday russian and u.s. special forces conducted their first ever major joint operation against drug producers in the region that astroid for labs and seized almost a ton of heroin. and a former u.s. drug policy spokesman robert wiener says it's a shame that washington couldn't come around to the view of eradication until russia forced its. unfortunate that it has taken this long to really come together with you there's going to reluctance in the united states to even go after the drug trade in afghanistan it's been a policy of the military to let it go and that's tragic and it's unbelievable to me
that it took russia to tell the united states where the drug labs were when we have a hundred thousand troops we spent eighty billion dollars on intelligence we have one hundred thousand additional contractors so we had to know were crawling all over every inch of that country but it took you to in fact to out the united states to force us and to embarrass us to cooperate with you to stop the drug trade which is in the interest of the entire world including the united states. you all with all still ahead for you this hour who is the most influential man in america. how do you. always doing. the american politicians so when people's trust we report on a comedian who's managed to. also put. the high
ranking officials this gives. a child to get. specialized military equipment like this heavily on the. state of the military hardware exhibition underway just. a new spy scandal has flared up between georgia and russia after reports that twenty people have been caught allegedly spying for moscow although many experts say this could just be a p.r. stunt by tbilisi. what we know at the moment is on friday the reuters news agency put out a report that said twenty people have been arrested in georgia were accused of trying to set up a spy ring for moscow now we still haven't heard anything from the georgian side from they say so far to say where they confirm or deny that this was happening they've said they will issue a news conference later on what we have heard though is some comments from the russian side russian politician saying that there is no need for russia to have
a spy ring in georgia it would be a waste of resources and suggesting that perhaps these people who have been arrested could be police using these they spy a cover up story to try and take the opposition political opposition away from the streets of georgia. this looks like another of george's internal political battles in russia is used as the boogie man as usual russia doesn't need a spy network in georgia it would be waste of resources russian officials can get all the information in georgia without leaving their desks there is a massive georgian john spirit here in russia was strong toys to homeland's so there's absolutely no need for any old spying methods to gather intelligence is obviously nothing more than part of george's internal policies such as the politicians that have been having a say in this political analysts as well suggesting that this could be the just the furthered imagination of somebody that's read far too many spy novels it's also
been brought up the comparisons between this and the the situation we saw earlier this year in the united states there wasn't so much spy saga as it was well a bit of an embarrassment really we ended up with. less charges for espionage and a lot more glossy magazine cover sheets on a chapman with the case for the leisure ship between the two countries has suffered since because really came to office in georgia in two thousand and six or so for the russian military personnel arrested accused of espionage that ended up resulting in transport in the city services between the two cars. entries been temporarily suspended their relationship really hit its lowest ebb in two thousand and eight when george aggression against the the cells the city and people saw russian troops moving into the region in a conflict taking place in august of that year so quite a few incidents over the past few years involving tensions between these two countries. and political analyst from the moscow state university. so this
story may be a p.r. stunt by georgian president mikhail saakashvili who is desperate to find approval in his own home country he has some serious problems with. the actions of protests in georgia but it's going to be taken in november at his personal reading political reading of the personal approval is less than fifty percent about eighty percent of georgians say they want to have a deterrent with russia to put it in plain english they want good relations with russia so he needs to find any approval the easiest way is to fire an enemy somewhere within that was alexy order ass off for political analyst from moscow state university. could a comedian in america have more power than the president the majority of voters on an online men's magazine certainly seem to think so they selected john stewart as the most influential man of the year in the united states and as artie's done
a study of child going to reports this saturday the funnyman will see it as popularity translates into political action. but when if an bots get in the way of political promises he promised during the campaign change you can believe been right it wasn't change you can believe in in eighteen months when the media war over with fear and anger. and the minds of a population are attacked with misinformation there's such a lack of truth on the airwaves were being dumbed down by the news business who are americans left to trust according to a poll conducted by an online men's magazine comedian jon stewart is the most influential man in america after eleven years on the daily show how for a million voters bumped him up to the number one spot and i would be concerned if it was they said larry the cable guy was the most trusted man comerica so i feel
like. one way of earning the trust has been confronting the mainstream media we need help from the media and they're doing us dissecting the lies being spun by pundits taking over t.v. screens in america i. know you think you clearly don't know you tell me you were on the border collies doing the learning experience. do you think it is dangerous well i wonder what the letter would have to say about the. care. in the us these days it is taking a comedian to show that the lack of trust in the media is what's causing programs ratings to crash i have privately amongst my friends and also an occasional newspapers and television show. mentioned this show as being bad and you made the
right choice you are leaving this place you know where you are you the last guy out of a burning building draw on. and you are so up and so comedian jon stewart became the most trusted man in america he calls crap like you sees it and always uses humor humor and simpler reasons to he's just a handsome man he's just a handsome trustworthy fellow but it's far from just the ladies appreciating the humor for the first time a sitting president has appeared on stewart's show just a couple of days before the midterm election democrats this year she had to be running on. please baby one more chance. in the same pool stewart won the number one spot obama didn't even make the top twenty with tens of thousands of americans if not more headed to jon stewart's rally to restore sanity this weekend the fight for truth in media and in politicians is moving almost right into the homes of the
political elite and even though stewart denies being a man of politics there is this idea out there that comedians do not have a personal political agenda but has one i can say that we do if the comedian were to push his agenda forward the most trusted man in america would have his followers join him which should be a scary thought for all those politicians media pundits and the rest of the establishment so far the way to earn trust with their own people once they see it you're going to r.c. new york. website is there for you to get your twenty four hours a day r.t. dot com on a slow going to find out what's waiting for you right now that it's not a load of old. pig races really all the best all the rest amazing images from the recent world. unique photos in our online gallery also.
looking for the. song the scariest night of the year however in the capital is not just fun it's also an exquisite. details. drivers in russia are launching a campaign against the new drink driving law which was recently introduced they claim it's too strict with harmless strings like tea or milk pushing them over the limit but traffic police say those zero tolerance approach is in fact effective. and i found out. operation in the break the driver is in full swing it's the latest attempt to combat russia's drink driving problem one of the worst in the world these offices are equipped with brand new breathalyzers and all
because zero tolerance law that allows no alcohol at all and to drive the system. instead of risking more people we're actually seeing a drop people are deterred by the new laws. indeed the several dozen drivers stopped by the police and besides all test clean authorities say that the combination of tougher legislation and more in terms of policing is having the desired effect not everybody agrees drivers' associations have been up in arms they say statistics show the drink driving has been on the wane in recent years regardless of legislation and they claim the new laws are unworkable and discriminatory drinking a small amount of alcohol has no impact on driving wire licensing is being confiscated from those whose ability to drive isn't impaired. it's the same question current through just a gay dude and his asking. for benefits so gay tries a government sanctioned breathalyzer. after
a cup of tea he takes the test again now he's over the legal limit. i got one of these government sanctioned breathalyzers for my birthday last year when the legislation was introduced i tried it and was surprised to discover alcohol content can be triggered not just by drinking small amounts of beer but by bread spicy food in milk now i'm starting a campaign against islam because i am not a criminal with the sort of gay is still driving. and hoping his coronary experiences won't cost him his license while the police hope that the number of drink driving relates to their fall from the two thousand recorded last year whatever it takes you can. see moscow. let's go to some other headlines making news stories around the world and investigations are continuing into a foiled terror plot after explosive devices were discovered on u.s. bound cargo planes in the u.k. and dubai the packages were addressed to synagogues in chicago president barack

that's a fourteen inch knife. for the maids a provision estate to carry say the life devastations going on today at the moment we call the ana gods a putting this ceremony and throughout the day they gave me ten months of life back the officials i just love the russian forces are capable of this is a three day event and it combines full connected specialized exhibitions one with the international exhibition at police and defense technologies another is the international specialist exhibition of technical systems and facilities the board a service and specialized international exhibition at the medical equipment and technologies in that area is one of the largest offenses kind in russian is a very unique event with support from the russian government that's the only exhibition in russia that demonstrates in the way it does the technical capabilities that face the full says and the equipment he had a demonstration by the russian in terror and n.s.a. pleasurable the combat operation and you can see now that the landing that i've

medina question of our reports the relative lack of locally produced components is putting the brakes on the russian auto industry. dashboards bomb the radiator grills and other components that's what this newly built plan and the cougar region will produce and more importantly that's what the fast recovering russian call market lacks at the moment the kaluga plant is just one of a serious of russia projects run by magna in late september the canadian company also announced the opening of three plants in st petersburg the total investment into the kaluga project top seventy four million euros the plunge will manufacture components for false fagging renal and trying for certain products. so we still have to import. data for example from from from outside.
pretty sure that this will change over time experts say this year global cop production could exceed pre-crisis levels with seventy million vehicles rolling off the assembly lines russia will contribute about one point seven million to the total by twenty eleven for many of this are simply a sample hand rather than build from scratch the biggest bottleneck for production in russia is the lack of social components there is plenty of manufacturing plants but the source of supply of world class quality components is pretty limited and a lot of the plants that are being set up a store importing a vast majority of components so now the big question really to consolidate the restoration of the russian car industry the growth potential of the russian call market is such that x. rays believe more foreign manufacturers will be looking to set up joint ventures with domestic firms but as the industry here expands some kinks in the
manufacturing process need to be are in out analysts say russia needs to produce more high quality natural. components if it's to fulfill its potential as a base for foreign carmakers might in the question of business. region. russia would increase gas supplies to poland by as much as forty percent during the signing of a new agreement after nearly two years of negotiations and legal delays the deal has been sealed the outline of the contract was agreed in january this year but it then faced a long process to comply with european antitrust law that the prime minister igor section of the talks in warsaw also included agreements in other areas of the energy sector. in the power industry we plan to export russian electricity to poland we've offered our polish partners to participate in constructing a baltic nuclear power plant but the shareholders and in other forums. are informed

economy back on track track but to get those dollars into global assets one of which is russia is to say it's a russian companies move to sectors that are really in the public eye right now the first is the banking sector and the second is the utility sector and banks is all about the privatization this announcement that russia is going to be privatizing states inspired by and can be has got a lot of people pretty excited and you know there's been some pretty positive changes that have taken place but from the management and in the way in which those banks are being being driven they're looking much more because of the pan russian platform and people are quite enthusiastic about that so the banks have done well and then the utility side there's a lot of speculation about when tariff reform will actually take place and we had some very good news this morning that finally the markets expectations have been met and you know tariff reform seems to be on track and so we've got a lot of money coming into the utility sector as well. and finally russia plans to create twenty one national parks and expand eleven existing ones over the next
